SUDLERSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials say a military practice bomb landed in a tavern parking lot but no one was injured.
The state fire marshal's office says witnesses reported the bomb fell from the sky Thursday night onto the paved parking lot at Darlene's Tavern in Sudlersville. Deputy State Fire Marshal Bruce Bouch says the device did not contain explosive material.
After first responders cleared away debris to find a military style bomb, the fire marshal's office bomb technicians were called in. They determined the device was a practice aerial bomb that would have been dropped by military aircraft flying in the area.
Bouch says the bomb was turned over to the 175th Wing Air National Guard, which is working to determine how it was dropped in that spot.
